All children are taught according to the programmes of study in the National Curriculum. This includes the Stepping Stones curriculum for the Foundation Stage children.
There are four core subjects: Literacy, Mathematics, Science and ICT(Information Communication Technology) The rest of the curriculum is dedicated to the foundation subjects. All documents related to the National Curriculum are available in school if you wish to borrow them to read.
Children are encouraged to be active and independent learners and experience a variety of teaching and learning styles. As our world becomes more technologically based it is vital that our children are able to face new learning situations confidently and with the ability to be able to solve problems and adapt.
- The National Strategies for Literacy and Mathematics are taught throughout the school.
- Science, Physical Education, Personal Social Health Education and Information Communication Technology are taught every week.
- We teach the foundation subjects using a cross-curricular, thematic approach.
Sex and Relationship Education
Special Educational Needs and Inclusion
- As part of our PSHE curriculum children are taught about friendships, social interaction, confidence and personal safety. The curriculum is structured to emphasise relationship development, mutual trust, honesty and integrity. Some issues relating to puberty and sexual maturity are included in the National Curriculum and these are taught with honesty and clarity.
- The Governors have agreed that sex education be taught to year 5 and 6 pupils. Parents of these children are invited to view the videos and discuss any issues they have prior to the topic being taught to the children. The school nurse is involved in this process. The policy is regularly reviewed in consultation with parents.
Religious Education and Collective Worship
- Additional support is made available to any child who is finding learning difficult. Parents are included in all the discussions concerning their child, the nature of the difficulty and the kind of support that will be provided.
- No child is denied their entitlement to the National Curriculum.
- We are an inclusive school.
- The school works in partnership with many agencies to provide educational access for all pupils.
- Religious Education is taught every week using the Essex County syllabus Open Worlds which has a multi faith content.
- Acts of collective worship are held daily.
- If you wish to withdraw your child from Religious Education, you should discuss this with the Headteacher and put your request in writing.
- All children have learning homework tasks to complete during the week. These tasks are recorded in the children's home school diaries.
- All chidren should read books during the week at home. Reading is a crucial skill for all their learning.
- A review of homework provision will be made during this academic year and your thoughts and views will be sought.
Out of Hours Learning
- Throughout their school life, pupils will be given many opportunities to visit and experience situations which will enhance and consolidate their learning. Local visits and residential visits are available at different times and the school does subsidise these activities quite substantially. However we will often ask for voluntary contributions towards the costs of educational visits. No child would be denied access to the visit, but if there are insufficient contributions visits may be cancelled.
- All visits are given a risk assessment, quality transport is provided and pupil/adult ratios are adhered to.
- We offer a wide range of activities before and after school. These opportunities vary from term to term depending on seasonal sports, weather and to create opportunities for all our pupils be they four or eleven.
- The school is part of a larger cluster of schools and if we do not provide the club or opportunity ourselves, we signpost opportunities available throughout the locality.
- If you would like to organise or help with an after school activity please come and discuss this with us. You would be very welcome.
